Beer Bottles

Local beer brewers operate an independent deposit-refund system for refillable beer bottles such as short-neck Labatt, Molson and Quidi Vidi bottles. Refillable beer bottles are not part of MMSB’s Used Beverage Container Recycling Program. However, some Green Depot locations may accept refillable beer bottles in partnership with local breweries; please call your local Green Depot for details on whether refillable beer bottles are accepted at your location.

Most corner stores accept the return of empty domestic beer bottles. Domestic beer bottles can also be dropped off at your local Brewer’s Agent. Make sure the bottles are empty, free of debris and have the caps off. Check with your local retailer on their policies for accepting domestic beer bottles.

Empty non-domestic/imported beer, liquor and wine bottles are to be returned to your local Green Depot.
